Congratulations are in order for Maleny High School on receiving funding in late 2010 under the Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Program. This program has been created to support local communities with the promotion of sport and recreation by developing spaces and places that are designed to encourage sport participation. Funding will be used to construct a new multi-purpose sporting facility on the school grounds. I recently met with Principal Brian King and a few of the people who worked incredibly hard on the submission, Brad and Greg Williams and Barb Fowler. Well done to everybody who was involved in getting this project off the ground – it is certainly a great win for the Hinterland community.
